I am teaching young children again! Not my own children this time, but the children of a very good friend. See our original post about this new adventure here. Each week I plan to share our plans, which I did for Letter L here, and I also plan to share after our week is done so you can see my students in action!

I am excited to share all about our twelfth week together, with a focus on the LETTER L! In addition to a letter focus each week I am using All About Reading Pre-Reading with them. Since I only have my students two days a week, we cram a lot into a short time! I also provide their parents with activities to do at home.
Letter L Fun
We enjoyed several different activities, most from my site! I will link everything we used below!
Below you can see AK and Ki doing the following activities:
- Beginning Sound Maze
- Pocket Chart Sentences Letter L
- Letter Sort
- Read & Write the Room
- What Begins With L?
- ABC Find It! Letter L
Letter Review Activities
Every 4 letters, we do some review activities! With me, they do two of them and I send one home for homework. Below you can see them working on the Cut, Mix, Sort, & Glue and the Dot Fun Letter ID Review. I sent home the other Beginning Sound Sort.
- Find Letter Ll
- Dab & Read Letter L
- Trace Letter Ll
Raising Lil Rock Stars Letter L
I didn’t get any action photos, or even a shot of our display board, but we enjoyed the verse bracelets, and tracing pages this week.
Letter L Toys & Puzzles
I love setting up fun letter displays and playing with the items. See more ideas here!
The kids enjoy playing with the toys and reading the books. Another hands-on activity I have them do is bring in objects from home that begin with the letter we are studying. Each week I take a photo of them with the objects they bring in and then I edit it and we have a photo album of each letter! Here’s their letter L photo:
Another activity we do each week is a beginning sound sort using our tiny objects. See more about this here! Each week we begin by sorting our new sound with a sound we have already learned. I put out a few objects that begin with each letter and they take turns sorting.
Letter L Books
We read tons of books featuring the Letter I! See all of our Letter L book ideas here!
While I work with one child, the other has “rug time” which is basically reading books or playing with toys on the rug! This works well and allows me some one on one time with each of them. After we finish they enjoy some rug time together. Below you can see them enjoying our Spielgaben set.
